This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought. It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.
This cake was made in the shape of a 7 which is the age of the birthday girl. It consists of 24 cupcakes topped with buttercream frosting. Everything is from scratch except the flowers which I purchased and I used edible color spray to color the cake.
